The final match between Zimbabwe and Pakistan ODI series is under serious doubts following a strike by the Zimbabwe players due to a payment dispute, reports ESPN.
The newly formed union of the Zimbabwe players are firm on their decision of not playing the decisive final in any case until the dues are paid.
Reports say that the Zimbabwe cricket board had promised the players that payments would be made by Thursday at the latest but the players are still waiting resulting in the skipping of training.
A close source of Zimbabwe told to ESPN Cricifo that -- "They want to get their point across and they want to make sure they get paid.
"If the money doesn't arrive today, then the chances are strong the game will not happen tomorrow."
This is a rare chance for Zimbabwe to win a silverware following a 1-1 series level in the three match series against Pakistan. Zimabawe have looked solid throughout the series but have failed in the death bowling in the 2nd ODI.
Kyle Jarvis, the former Zimbabwe fast bowler declared his retirement recently from International Cricket due to the same issues of payment and job security in the Zimbabwe cricket team.
